United Planet is an international non-profit organization that provides local and international volunteer programs to communities in need spanning over 20 countries. These programs, known as "Quests", strive to create cross-cultural understanding, foster lasting relationships, and provide meaningful service to the world. Quest programs are available as short-term, lasting from 1 to 12 weeks, or long-term, which can last 6 months to a year. With United Planet, you can choose your project area -- from teaching to environmental conservation to women's empowerment -- and more! On a more local level, United Planet is working to create United Planet Chapters. The United Planet Chapters are opportunities for people to establish programs in their communities and schools to inspire leadership, civic engagement, and international cooperation and empower people of all ages to become catalysts for change. It provides opportunities for people interested in different cultures to learn from others as well as spread their knowledge.
